A little more on GB3ZY

I've made a few cautious comments here about the receive system at the 50MHZ repeater, GB3ZY. I say cautious, because having been around radio a while, you never quite know whether it's you, or the far end that's not working quite as you expected.

Roger, G4HZA was down in the Bristol area over the weekend and spoke to some locals on GB3ZY. It seems that there is a slight de-sense problem on the repeater which is causing it to appear a little 'deaf'.

It sounds like the group are well aware of the problem and hoping to do something about it.

That would be superb - as the coverage of the repeater is excellent and it would be exciting to use it at some longer ranges.
